Imagine you’re invited to a party.
You check the date, time and place. You get ready and turn up. You expect to be the centre of attention.
But when you arrive, the party is happening and has been going forever. Everybody is talking at once.
Everybody seems to know everyone else. People will stop talking, join another group, talk for a while and then return to the original conversation as if nothing has happened.
So what do you do? You could choose a random person and start talking to them. You could choose a group and interrupt the conversation. Or you could wait and listen and when the right time take a chance to converse.
